About the Session:


If all teachers are to be teachers of reading and writing,  what happens to their content?  Disciplinary teachers have been asking that question for years and now we have an answer. Join ReLeah Lent, author of This is Disciplinary Literacy as well as the co-author of her new book (Marsha Voigt), Disciplinary Literacy in Action for a book club that promises to be engaging and relevant. We'll talk about how to infuse literacy as a tool for deep learning in ELA, social studies, science, math and other subjects as well. This series is for teachers as well as administrators who want to be a part of lively discussions that target how to create and sustain change not only in classrooms, grade levels and departments but across the entire school. 

This learning opportunity is being offered on a cost recovery basis.
